Fade Away
Buprenorphine/Naloxone (Suboxone)
Citation:   KLOpin. "Fade Away: An Experience with Buprenorphine/Naloxone (Suboxone) (exp73228)". Nov 12, 2015.

4 mg   Pharms - Buprenorphine (pill / tablet)
  1 mg   Naloxone (pill / tablet)
I have used recriationally every kind of opiate there is. Suboxone is great. A few negative side effects...

- I constantly feel like my eyes are crossed
- severe nausea
- dizziness
- extreme hot/cold flashes
- lack of hunger for several hours
- if I'm driving around after 2 hours of taking or walking around alot I have a 95% chance of projectile vomiting EVERYTHING in my stomach, I mean everything. There was one time I took a quarter of an 8mg pill and a couple hours later drove to a party which was 35 min away up hills in such. [Erowid Note: Driving while intoxicated, tripping, or extremely sleep deprived is dangerous and irresponsible because it endangers other people. Don't do it!] Once I had gotten there it was impossible to hide the fact that I was on something, I couldn't stand up without puking (violently) or dry heaving. This continued on several hours even after we had left the party.

If I feel sick, I lay down. Or just sit on a couch, relax. All the wonderful effects of suboxone will take over my nervous system instantly, and I will feel GREAT.

Suboxone to my knowledge last 72 hours. Like other drugs it has its stages:

2 hours- Gradual coming up (I feel the effects instantly but very very subtle) ** might not be feeling anything the first hour or so

3 hours after initial intake....feel definite effect now of the drug, euphoria, slight dizziness, sedation, relaxation, pupils very small

3 and half hours- PEAK (a tingly floating sensation with come over me, a more intense feeling than an hour ago. The peaking doesn't last too long (unfortunately), at most 45 min. The first time I took suboxone, I described it as melting into my couch literally it feels so great.

After that it's a very very gradual come down.. Lingering its effects on, to several hours after intial intake. I can generally tell if I'm still fucked up by the size of my pupils. If they seem smaller than normal...I'm still silly!

Suboxone has also the tendancy to knock me out for several hours, which may only seem like 1-2 hours. It puts me in a deep sleep (sedation) in which once I'm asleep it is very difficult to wake up.

I refrain from taking suboxone at a time like midnight or later (or when I have things to do the next day school, work, etc.). I have had previous experiences and basically I'm fucked up the next day, ALL DAY. It is EXTREMELY hard to get out of bed, a few nights ago this occurred, resulting in waking up at 1:30pm, only to doze right back down until 6:30pm to still not be able to get up until 7:30, then once 7:30 came around, I decided to go get something to eat (bad idea) initially feeling very nauscious, I took one bite of my soft taco, and had to run out of the deli and projectile vomit everywhere. After this I decided it was best to lay down. Again slept for three more hours...didn't feel the slightest bit back to normal until 12 am. I don't really mind the vomitting though, it happens rarely, and it's a 'dope sick' I can't really feel anything.

Suboxone is a warm, happy, ITCHY high. I would compare suboxone most like morphine, heroin, and oxycodone. Suboxone's not nearly as 'euphoric' as the above drugs. It is made for recovering heroin or opiate addicts which means its job is to give the same feeling as the above drugs without the extreme euphoria, rush, and physical dependence that come along with them. Examples: Ritalin vs. Cocaine. (not nearly as great as the real thing, but same effects)

It's VERY strong, and although they say theres no physical dependence, anything that's this good can be addicting.
